Laura Brown didn’t see it like that, though.
In fact, she quickly jumped in to make excuses for her attackers:
Making a statement-to be clear,it was only about 5 people – They should not blanket the rest of those inv. w/shale gas movement @Global_NB

Let’s pretend that Brown’s truck and equipment had been seized by “only about 5″ pro-life protesters outside an abortion clinic, after some of their number had set fire to a half dozen police cars.
Somehow I doubt she and her Twitter fans would’ve been quite so sanguine about all that.
Anyhow, a fellow reporter from evil, right-wing competitor Sun News took Brown to the RCMP to file an official complaint.
That reporter, the Sun’s Kris Sims, was threatened by Indians too.
That went a little differently…
